Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today


Good morning, it’s time once again to update you all on the latest happenings on the CFZ daily news blog. Before I do so though, its biscuit of the week time.
This weeks biscuit is the rich tea… only joking, that vile flavourless filth does not even deserve to be classed as a biscuit, honestly calling a rich tea a biscuit is like calling ‘big bang theory’ a comedy; technically it's true, but only because nobody dies at the end. Our true biscuit of the week is the noble Jammy Dodger, revel in its jammy enriched goodness (eat enough jammy dodgers a day and the jam counts as one of those 5 fruit and veg portions a day that the government insist we must eat OR DIE, probably).
Anyway, news:

The chance for me to tell vampire related puns twice in a week ‘Haz’ to be ‘Le-stat’isticly improbable at best, but maybe I should just draw an ‘Evanga-line’ under the vampire related stuff for a while as I’m already starting to scrape the barrel, I wouldn’t want anyone reading this to start getting ‘cross’.
